In today’s social media star world it’s easy to get intimidated by the images we see of yoga. Please be advised you do not have to be flexible to do yoga. All you have to do is be willing to check your ego at the door. As we continue to seek the fountain of youth we are realizing that the more we try to be 23 again the more the fountain is drying up. That is when it is time to turn to exercise that is easier on the joints, increases blood flow and builds strong muscles and bones. YOGA!!! With it’s adaptability and use of props anyone truly anyone can do yoga. However, if your ego keeps telling you you have to be perfect or not to look stupid then you just may miss out on all the wonderful benefits of a regular yoga practice. Like less stress, sleeping better, eating better and even getting better at yoga.
Google yoga studios in your area. Find one that does an Introductory or beginner course in yoga. You will learn the names of postures and various breathing techniques to help increase oxygenation and reduce stress. You will also be in a group of other beginners. And you may even make friends with people who are also looking to better their health and feel better in body while getting or staying fit. Find a friend and do it together and if anyone misses a week they owe the other person a pair of Athleta yoga pants. And at those prices you’ll be sure you both will show up.
Hesitate no more! Isn’t it time to grow a little and achieve more and be around for the great grand kids?
